Biography

My research is focused on discrete optimization methods for analyzing images, with an emphasis on medical applications. I hold a joint position in computer science and in radiology, and most of my work involves both departments.

Teaching Interests

I enjoy teaching introductory undergraduate courses, especially involving functional programming or algorithms.
